Ones Mans Trash Is Roberts Treasure.
Robert Bradford came up with this idea that old recycled toys would be a great addition to work with during one of his art creations mainly toys are used but so are other colorful plastic bits and pieces, such as combs and buttons, brushes and parts of clothing clips. In 2002, he started believing that his children’s forgotten toys could have as part of something bigger. Bradford says he likes the idea that the plastic pieces have a history, some unknown past, and that they also pass on a “cultural” history as each of the pieces represents a point in time. Recycling is not really his concern, but each piece he uses is prevented from being landfill. Some of the sculptures contain pieces from up to 3,000 toys and sell for $19,000.... hmp not bad for what could've just been a hand me down.
